HEAVEN'S GROCERY STORE
I was walking down Life's Highway, along time ago, One day I saw a sign that read "Heaven's Grocery Store." As I got a little closer, the door came open wide, When I came to myself I was standing inside. I saw a host of angels, they were standing everywhere. One handed me a basket and said, "My child shop with care." Everything a person needed was in that grocery store. And what you could not carry, well you could come back the next day for more. First I got some Patience, Love was in the same row. Farther down was Understanding, you, need that wherever you go. I got a box or two of wisdom, a bag or two of Faith. I couldn't miss the Spirit, for it was all over the place. I stopped to get some Strength & Courage to help me run this race. By then my basket was getting full, but I remembered I needed some Grace. I didn't forget Salvation, for Salvation is free, So I tried to get enough of that to save both you and me, Then I started to go up to the counter to pay my grocery bill, for I thought I had enough of everything to do my Master's will. As I went up the aisle I saw Prayer, and I just had to put that in for I knew that when I stepped outside I would run into Sin. Peace & Joy were plentiful, they were on the last shelf. Song & Praise were hanging near, so I just helped myself, Then I said to the angel "How much do I owe?" He just smiled and said "Just take them everywhere you go. Again I smiled and said "How much do I really owe?" He smiled and said "My child, the Lord God paid your bill a long time ago." Fannie Lakatos Paden City, W.VA.
